MAXS Developer Quickstart Guide

Table of Contents

If the prerequisites are satisfied and everything is correctly configured, MAXS can be obtained and build with two simple steps:

  1. git clone --recursive https://bitbucket.org/projectmaxs/maxs.git
  2. cd maxs && make

1 Introduction

MAXS is developed under Linux and sometimes with Eclipse as IDE. This guide hence focuses on this setup. But it should be also possible to develop on other platforms, given the prerequisistes are satisfied.

2 Prerequisites

In order develop MAXS, you need to be able to build it from source. MAXS's build system requires the following prerequisites:

  • Android SDK
  • bash
  • git
  • make (e.g. GNU Make)
  • A file system with symlink support and a POSIX compatible ln binary

3 Checking out the source

git clone --recursive https://bitbucket.org/projectmaxs/maxs.git

4 Importing MAXS components projects into Eclipse

Call make eclipse from the project's root directory to setup the Eclipse configuration. You can then import the components from Eclipse with FileImportAndroidExisting Android Code Into Workspace, select the root directory of maxs and all component projects should appear in the Projects: list.
